The best time to send an engagement card is shortly after the announcement has been made. If the couple is having an engagement party, you can bring your card along with a gift for the couple to the party. If not, it is best to mail your engagement card out no later than four months after the announcement. Whatever you do, make sure it’s in the mail before the actual wedding. When you’re writing your engagement card for the happy couple, speak from the heart and the writing process will be easier than you think. Sincere best wishes and congratulations for the happy couple will be a gesture they appreciate and remember. Getting engaged marks quite a major milestone in life, and there’s nothing more satisfying than letting someone know how much you care about them at these pivotal moments.
